I use lavender combinations with my patients with cancer and other critical diseases. I also use lavender for my people with grief, anxiety, and depression disorders. Lavender is an ancient herb with calming properties that works incredibly for stress, anxiety, and depression. Lavender is known for its ability to comfort. Lavender seeds were used in classrooms in 19th century France to calm boisterous children, French pharmacies sold lavender for generations as a sleep aid. Nagano College of Nursing in Japan monitored the electrocardiograms, blood flow, and respiratory rates of nursing students after they enjoyed a footbath with lavender oil, and they found significant changes in autonomic activity, which increased relaxation.
